Joe Biden is personally responsible for one of the worst humiliations in America’s history.
But he’s trying to keep it quiet at all costs.
This one demand made Joe Biden wildly fire a top military commander.
The way that America has withdrawn from Afghanistan has been incompetent on every level.
President Joe Biden decided to pull out troops and abandon Bagram Airfield before evacuation.
This choice meant that all evacuations were done through Kabul airport, located at the heart of the city which is impossible to defend.
A terrorist attack of the airport resulted in the deaths of at least 13 U.S. service members.
Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, a U.S. Marine infantry officer and battalion commander, demanded that members of the Biden administration be held accountable for the disaster in a video last week.
This resulted in him being fired.
“I want to specifically ask some questions to some of my senior leaders.” Scheller said in the video.
“If I’m willing to risk my current battalion commander seat, my retirement, my family stability, to say some of the things that I want to say, I think it gives me some moral high ground to demand the same honesty, integrity, accountability from my senior leaders,” he continued. “The reason people are so upset on social media right now is not because the Marine on the battlefield, let someone down, that servicemember has always rose to the occasion, done extraordinary things. People are upset because their senior leaders let them down. And none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability, are saying we messed this up.”
Scheller noted that an EO complaint would get an O-5 battalion commander fired.
“But we have a secretary of defense that testified to Congress in May that the Afghan National Security Force could withstand the Taliban advance.” He continued, “We have Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs — who the commandant is a member of that — who’s supposed to advise on military policy. We have a Marine combatant commander. All of these people are supposed to advise. And I’m not saying we’ve got to be in Afghanistan forever. But I am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, hey, it’s a bad idea to evacuate Bagram Airfield, a strategic airbase, before we evacuate everyone? Did anyone do that? And when you didn’t think to do that, did anyone raise your hand and say, we completely messed this up?”
Yet instead of any of the Biden administration taking responsibility for their actions, they fired the commander who dared to question them.
Late on Friday afternoon, Scheller wrote on social media that he had been “relieved for cause based on a lack of trust and confidence as of 14:30 today.”
